Fall in Minnewaska State Park – A Nature Lover’s Paradise

The beautiful outdoors landscape of the Hudson Valley is one of the reasons it is a bucket list vacation destination. Right now, during the current pandemic with social distancing guidelines, the Hudson Valley is the ideal place to sneak in a fall getaway! Our gorgeous bed and breakfast is the perfect choice for romantic, elegant accommodations. During your stay you can stay tucked away with full privacy for ultimate relaxation or you can get outdoors and enjoy an activity such as hiking the waterfalls in Minnewaska State Park.

With the Coronavirus still active in New York, we are still abiding by the guideline requiring all travelers coming from states with significant rates of transmission of COVID-19 to quarantine for a 14-day period. While this rule results in us being unable to host guests from those states at this time, we don’t want to stop sharing about all the amazing things to do and see in the Hudson Valley. For our friends that are local, keep checking our blog for events going on or things you can do during this time. For our past and future guests waiting in the wings, you can book your stay today for a getaway in the future! Having a special vacation to look forward to can make the dreary days a bit brighter!

Now, back to Minnewaska State Park! The Minnewaska State Park Preserve is about 40 minutes north from our bed and breakfast in Salisbury Mills. This gorgeous area is situated on the dramatic Shawangunk Mountain ridge. Like a setting from a fairytale book, this very popular park features numerous waterfalls, three crystalline lakes, numerous streams, dense forests, and all kinds of sheer cliffs and ledges that open up to beautiful views. It is a true nature lover’s paradise and the fall season is a perfect time to check it out. There are 50 miles of paths to choose from for biking, hiking, and walking. Rainbow Falls Trail is a 6.5-mile trek that features a waterfall, or try the Awosting Falls trail that is a quick 1-mile hike with a great waterfall reward at the end.

We know this year has put a halt to so many people’s travel plans and for us, it’s been tough not seeing and meeting new and old friends. But, we will prevail and look ahead to a brighter future! You can also make someone else’s future brighter by purchasing them a gift certificate for a stay at our bed and breakfast! We are taking reservations for future stays so book a stay today through our convenient online reservation system. Stay safe friends!
